TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (2/19/14)--The League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) released its annual self-assessment, which shows what the league did for its member credit unions regarding governmental affairs, education, cooperative initiatives and communications.
"What you see more than anything is that consolidating the Alabama and Florida Leagues has been a success," said LSCU President/CEO Patrick La Pine (eSignal Feb. 17). The league returned a 10% dues rebate worth $310,000--the first in its history. Its service corporation, LEVERAGE, shared more than $100,000 in patronage dividends to Alabama and Mississippi credit unions.
The league ended 2013 with an 84% affiliation rate and 11 new member credit unions.
"Our two states and the movement are stronger because we work cooperatively together," La Pine said.
